It’s a life size painting of the Lord Hanuman in a more realistic form. It is done in a more natural way to bring focus to the cruelty to animal. As in Hinduism most of the animal are considered Gods or manifestation of Gods. By painting Lord Hanuman in a realistic form I am trying to draw focus on treating them a living beings of value and to respect them as equal citizens of the planet.

This was a beautiful project which I did for a dear friend. It was much more traditional, I did coloured the face this time. It was out of my comfort zone but I truely enjoyed the process.
Inspired by the photograph clicked by Nils Wachter. The piercing look of the girls attracted me to the photograph initially and I decided to paint them.

I have been working on this commission since last month. I came to know about him after I got this project. It was an interesting venture. And it was a challenge because the reference photograph was very blurry. So finally I get to say I finished it and the client is happy.
This commission was given to me last month. The specifications were simple. Any Indian dance form, so I chose mohiniyattam because it concentrates most on the facial features. I was give full liberty to do as I please which is rare when you are doing a commission.
Sorry for being away for quite some time. I have been busy learning and experimenting with oil paint. It was challenging and exiting at the same time. This was a large piece. And it has many flaws but you can’t learn without making mistakes so there will be many more experiments and processes till I learn oil painting like a pro. #selftaught
Finally done with the painting, packaging and handing over of the latest commission. The project was religious. The details were many. The symbolic meanings were everywhere. But all in all it was a learning experience. Both in terms of new techniques and knowledge. I hope I have delivered up to their expectations and I hope they enjoy it.
